A Papillon Potpourri Birthday

I am having a lot of fun with the Papillon Potpourri set and the butterfly punch!  I just LOVE that punch.  It sure makes it easier to make the cards I want with butterflies on them because I know I don't have to cut them out by hand. I've had several cards I wanted to make but the thought of cutting out the image turned me off and it went by the wayside.  But with this set and the butterfly punch I can make all the beautiful butterfly cards I want and not have to cut a single one of them out!  Well, unless I want to incorporate the smaller butterflies in the set into my card.  But for now I don't!!!

This card was fun and easy to make.  I added an embossed Dotted background piece to the Whisper White card base.  Then I punched out three strips using the Ribbon Punch.  The hard part of that was getting a thin layer of Dimensionals scrap to the back of the strips. But I did manage.  And I did manage to get them just a bit crooked too but oh well, what's done is done and besides, it is a handmade card, isn't it???  I put those 3 strips onto a strip of white and then taped that to the front of the card.

The words came from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  I stamped them and then punched them out with the 1-3/8"" circle punch.  I punched out a Daffodil Delight scalloped circle and taped the words to it.  I did trim the bottom up a bit.  Why I don't know, it all was hidden behind the white strip.  I just wanted them to be evened up.  See how nice it looks on the card with the scalloped piece and circle evened up?  LOL  It didn't make a bit of difference, just me being picky!!! LOL

Then I stamped the butterfly using black StazOn ink.  I colored it in with markers and a blender pen and then I punched it out.  I taped it in place on the punched ribbon pieces and that was it.  Very easy, simple and clean!
